His flute’s cheerless symphony

Is heart piercing melancholy!

 I feel as if flowers forgot to glow

Rivers forgot to flow

Breeze forgot to blow

The evening! Sensed its rhythm

And I; like a pearl in the shell

Remained silent and still

ایک اُداس نظم

اُ س کی اُداس بانسری

دِلوں کے آرپار بجتی ہے

تو مجھے یوں لگتا ہے

جیسے ہوا چلنا،

دریا بہنا، پھول کھلنا

بھول گئے ہوں

اور شام

شام تو اُس کی اُداس دُھن پر

سر دُھنتی رہ گئی ہو

اور میں

میں تو جیسے گھونگھے کے اندر سیپ

اور سیپ کے اندر موتی

ساکت و جامد!

Face of Muhammad is the evidence of Deity

Veiled in Muhammad’s being is light of Deity

Common people can’t recognize this realism

Only the chosen few can realize the realism

His face glows like the full moon

His forehead emits luminous beam

Black tresses and entrancing eyes

Ecstatic intoxicated striking eyes

Two eye brows are like two bows

Seems like eye lashes shoot arrows

Crimson lips as red rubies of Yemen

Teeth are like white pearls in a row

**************

How to enlighten his glorious face

Is he essence of life of life’s face?

The truth is; he’s akin to glory of God

All world glories derive from his God

******************
Come out of thy cell and come to the mosque

Everyone crave s to sight of thy luminous self

Mortal and eternal beings lay eyes on thy way

Human, angels, fairies, dryad lay eyes on thy way

They’re fervent to have a glimpse of you

They’re standing by to offer their lives for you

Believers keen to be sold for free in thy way

May same divine time come again for thy way!

All praise and glory to the Creator

Who created thou o Prophet ﷺ

As the most handsome perfect being

Mehar Ali is trivial to chant thy being

How dare his insolent eyes see YOU ﷺ

Allah is aware of my those prayers,

I’ve never supplicated ever to Him

I put them only in my poetic rosary

I’m sure Allah will be touched

Once I recite my poems to Him

He! The one who’s more benevolent

More loving than seventy mothers;

The Creator, originator, the designer!

He knows even the hearts hush-hush

Allah is conscious of my prayers

He converses in my insightful poetry

خدا میری اُن دُعاؤں کا بھی
رازداں ہے
جو میں نے کبھی نہیں مانگیں
بس نظم کی تسبیح میں پروئی ہیں
اور مجھے کامل یقین ہے کہ
اگر میں وہ نظمیں خدا کو سناؤں تو
اُس کی آنکھیں بھی بھیگ جائیں
وہ خدا
جو ستر ماؤں سے زیادہ مہربان ہے
خالق ہے ، موجد ہے ، صورت گر ہے
اور سینوں کے بھید خوب جانتا ہے
وہی خدا میری دُعاؤں کا رازداں ہے
میر ی نظموں میں بولتا ہے !!
(نجمہ منصور)

My wishes come as prayer on lips of mine

O Allah! May my life alight as candles shine?

May worlds’ gloom vanish through my being?

May every place glow with my radiant being

May my homeland get esteem through me!

Like the flowers flourish garden with glee

May my life be similar to a moth O Lord!

May I also love insight knowledge, O Lord!

May I be supportive to the poor in need!

To love and care the old and help in need

O Lord! Protect me from immoral deeds

Guide me to follow the way of good deeds

lab pe aatii hai duaa banake tamannaa merii

1-har ek baat pe kahate ho tum ki tuu kyaa hai

tumhii.n kaho ke ye a.ndaaz-e-guftaguu kyaa hai

Everything that I say; you disapprove of my being

Tell me is this thy approach to disrespect my being

*****

2-jaan tum par nisaar karataa huu.N

mai.n nahii.n jaanataa duaa kyaa hai

I surrender my whole subsistence to you
I’m unaware of pray; I only know you—

*****

3. mai.n ne maanaa ki kuchh nahii.n ‘Ghalib’

muft haath aaye to buraa kyaa hai ?

I’m know very well, that I’m nothing Ghalib

So what’s the problem if you easily get me?

*****

4. Ghalib sharab peene do Masjid mein baith kar

Ya woh jagah batao jaha khuda nahi.

Ghalib let me rejoice wine in the mosque

Or, show the place where there’s no God

*****

5. Phir dekhiyen andaz-e-gul afshaani-e-guftar;

rakh de koyi paimaan-e-saiba mere aage

Lets again enjoy her blossoming conversation

Someone put a wine chalice for my mediation

******

6. “Ragon mein daudte phirne ke hum nahi qaael,

Jab aankh hi se na tapka to phir lahoo kya hai ”

I don’t believe blood flowing in veins is of any worth

Unless eyes shed woe as blood tears! It’s worth

واں تُو ہے زرد پوش یہاں میں ہوں زرد رنگ
واں تیرے گھر بسنت ہے یاں میرے گھر بسنت
مومن
You’re clothed in yellow there I put on yellow here

You’ve basant in thy home; I’ve basant in home here

اک ہمیں خار تھے آنکھوں میں سبھی کے سو چلے
بلبلو خوش رہو اب تم گل و گلزار کے ساتھ

I was the only thorn in the eyes of all, so gone

Nightingales! Rejoice with flowers in the garden

****
03۔
اگر کہیں تو کسی کو نہ اعتبار آوے
کہ ہم کو راہ میں اک آشنا نے لوٹ لیا

Nobody would accept as true if I say

That someone looted me on the way

اُنگلیاں اٹھے لگیں دستِ حنائی پہ ترے
رنگ لائے گا ابھی خونِ شہیداں کیا کیا

Fingers point at thy henna adorned hands

More admirers will dispute on thy hands
جعفر علی خاں اثرؔ

06۔
اے دل تمام نفع ہے سودائے عشق میں
اک جان کا زیاں ہے سو ایسا زیاں نہیں

O dear heart! Love is a dealing of profit only

Failure if any; is nothing but loss of life only
آزردہؔ

07۔
بال و پر بھی گئے بہار کے ساتھ
اب توقع نہیں رہائی کی

Loveliness and vitality gone with spring

No hope left to recover verve with spring

08۔
بے عذر وہ کر لیتے ہیں وعدہ یہ سمجھ کر
یہ اہلِ مروت ہیں تقاضا نہ کریں گے

They make promises without any reason

Being balanced, they’ll never ask reason
شیفتہ
**
09۔
بلایا موت کو برسوں میں التجا کر کے
خدا کے پاس چلا ہوں خدا خدا کر کے

Requested demise for ages to to engulf me

Now going to God; after appeals to engulf me

بیخود دہلوی۔
**

10-

چمن سے دور رہا اس قدر قفس میرا
کہ پہنچی اُڑ کے نہ مجھ تک گلِ چمن کی بُو

My cage was so faraway from the garden

Fragrance failed to get to me from garden
